Survival test at Valhalla
In the 2000 PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club, Tiger Woods had a one-stroke lead going into the last hole of a threehole playoff against Bob May. That hole, the par-5 18th, is similar to the generic design shown here, with a split fairway straddling a lake. Woods played well left off the tee, his ball caroming down a cartpath and onto some hardpan. He hit a conservative second shot into the left rough (of the left fairway) and put his third into a bunker fronting the green. After a brilliant bunker shot to two feet, Tiger tapped in for par and claimed his fifth major-championship victory.
